Smith’s edgy and funny The Watts Towers Project focuses on Simon Rodia, the Italian immigrant who spent thirty-three years building his towers—only to walk away from them, never to return. Smith blends his own childhood, the life of Rodia, and the last quarter-century of Los Angeles history to create (in the words of Back Stage West) a “wonderfully eclectic piece.”
